Halloween ~ The East Wind Challenge #41
Hi everyone. We are beginning a new challenge on The East Wind Challenge Blog which runs until October 25. The theme for Challenge #41 is Halloween so we are looking for any project which is Halloween related. I chose to do another mixed media background to feature the lovely Lucy Loo Glamzombie.
I coloured Lucy Loo with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils adding green shading to give her a ghoulish glow. She was then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted in black for contrast against the background. She was popped up on foam tape so that a spooky shadow would surround her once she was adhered to the background.
The 6 x 8 mixed media paper background was sprayed with Yellow Rose of Texas and Marigold Yellow Orange Lindy's Starburst sprays. Love that shimmer from the mica in those sprays. Hag's Wart Orange was then sprayed through the Dylusions Blocks stencil and it was also flipped over to create more pattern when it was used as a stamp. Autumn's Maple Crimson Starburst spray was used to drip the nasty red from the top of the background using a paintbrush. The black strip of cardstock was patterned with Dylusions white paint and a runners stencil from Coffee Break Designs. That's the fast food that Glamzombie hates...people who run! The little haunted house was fussy cut from designer paper. Coloured pencil and black pen doodling were added to liven it up a bit.
The computer generated saying was printed on white cardstock, trimmed out and matted with black cardstock. Each word was popped up on foam tape to emphasize it and create dimension. Small bats were die cut from black and scattered around the sky. To complete the piece, a black mat was added to the background to frame it and keep the eye within that rectangle.
Thanks for joining Lucy Loo Glamzombie and me today. We are delighted that you did. To see what the rest of The East Wind Blog Dt members cooked up for this Halloween Challenge, pop over to The East Wind Challenge blog. We would love to have you play along with us!
Life is good; so is art.
